I have no idea if these videos have been posted before because I have no desire to go through all the pages. They are just some very well done videos on the illusions Criss does that he insists aren't done with camera tricks.
The Wall - hit by a car
Levitation - levitating from one building to another
Motocycle Jump - Vanishes in the middle of a motor cycle jump
Rollercoaster - An "Escape" or "Transposition" of Criss standing in a drum like structure on a rollercoaster track.

Yes they've been posted, although I don't recall the Bike Jump. I don't think camera tricks were used with the jump, and that he jumped or ejected himself off the bike as the explosion emitted the puff of smoke, giving the appearance he vanished and obscuring the view of him seperating from the bike.

Think back to bible school or going to church, it was the great JC. Then I kind of started to connect the dots, could Criss be the antiChrist? I mean in revelations the AC is supposed to perform great feats for all to see (on TV??) I also think that he did the 2 water walks to mimik or even mock JC, you know like he was saying, "its not that hard anyone can do this". I mean even his name kind of points to this. People are pretty familiar with christianity, and know that even satan is an "Angel", just a really really bad one.

If anyone has seen the walk on water episodes, it will simply blow your mind. I know mine was, I can't explain it, it was just crazy. He stepped out onto the freakin pool that people were swimming in. I mean how does someone fake that...

I just watched Criss Angel walking on water in Vegas on YouTube and it was so unbelievably obvious in the POV shots looking down at his feet that he was suspended from a harness I can't believe they put them in.
His feet were sinking further into the water than in the long shots. He wasn't travelling forward at the same speed, in fact you could see his feet "dragging" backwards through the water relative to his forward movement.
Too easy to see.
As for the woman who swam between his legs, note how she carefully moved in a straight line matching him, not across his direction.
And why do you think they put the black circle around the hand-held camera in the pool? Plus there were those handy splashes on the lens to obscure things a bit more. Also, did anybody else notice that it was just a cheap handy-cam, not a rather more expensive broadcast quality digi (or even a Betacam)?
All the screaming and whooping just made it worse. Typical "reality tv/15 minutes" generation crap. You know why old-time magicians use silence so much...silence is genuine awe-struckness, cheering is for the high-school basketball team...
